Holiday Sales Party Thrown: Nobody Shoes Up

Today I predict that holiday sales will be dismal — a party thrown — which nobody shows up.

With deep-cut pre-Christmas sales having no effect on customer spending habits, why do stores think that lowering prices another 10 or 20 percent will entice customers to part with their money?

With a deep deflationary cycle going on in the world, simply wait a few months when the prices will be deeply discounted.  Simply wait and only buy the things you need instead of want — because — it’s cool to be frugal.

Will There Be an After Christmas Sales Stampede at Walmart

Will there be an after christmas sales stampede at Wal Mart this Friday?  My prediction there is going to be a huge rush to bring back gifts that nobody really wanted in the first place.

Dump them off and then go get something on sale.  How many will get hurt in the stampede for getting 50 to 80 percent off.

Stay home folks and save your money for the upcoming economic colaspe.

Price of Gold Shoots Up Over $800

The price of gold did a jump shot and hit $800 today.  With a price increase of over $50, gold is becoming … well gold again…  He shoots … Gooooold, Goooooold, Gooooold, Gooooold … I guess you have to watch a soccer match announced in Spanish.

I wanted to buy gold earlier this week when it was hovering around $700.  Doh, sometimes you want to kick yourself.

I wasn’t able to make it to the bank until today to withdraw the money for the purchase and I hate carry a couple of grand around with me.  The money is still safer in the bank for now…

It’s really hard to get gold on the street since none of the coin dealers have it in stock.  But with last dip, people got scared and started to sell.  I was only able to get a few ozs:

  • 2 oz of the California Gold Coin
  • 1/2 oz gold eagle
  • 1/4 oz Canadian dollar

Sarah Palin Gives Pardon in Front of Turkey Slaughter (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin, it’s time to hand out the pardons.  This mockery and little concern for animals shows how callous she is and unaware of what’s going on while she pardons a turkey and then continues on with the interview.

WARNING, the video you are about to see is her give an interview while in the background you get to see turkeys slaughtered, throats slit and blood drained from their bodies…

Tiger Woods Wins but Loses Composure On 14th

It took 19 holes to for Tiger Woods to prove that he is the 2008 US Open Champion.  Sometimes the 19th hole is referred in golf as the club house bar, but this time he won it in double overtime on the 7th against Rocco Mediate.

Tiger went ahead early with a +3 lead only to blow it on the 14th and went -1 to Rocco after Rocco’s amazing birdie streak.  But Woods caught up to him again on the 18th forcing a double playoff.

Back to the 7th hole, Woods drives a monster shot past the bunker which Rocco manages to hit.

It was all over then Rocco duffs his shot into the stands and is forced to drop.
